3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 8.5%. Almost clear golden colour, has some small white floaties. Big, unstable white head. Sourish aroma, metallic, bitter smell. The flavour is yeasty, fruity and malty, a lot better than the aroma. Peppery aftertaste.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
While not a bad beer - I didn’t quite enjoy it. Too bitter, too rough on the palate. Smelled sweet, but tasted rough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a murky golden amber, with a white head. Aroma was that of fruit maybe an orange or citrus type. Taste was a bitter fruit with spicy zest.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2007 First rating.
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget" in December 2005.
Golden color, resembles the Leffe blonde in smell and taste. Very nice, well balanced, the best of the Leffe series according to me.
Sampled from 33 cl bottle at Haket, Göteborg.
Bottle marked 8.5% ABV.
Shady amber color, big fluffy white head. Fresh Belgian ale with "wit" scent. Spicy and alcohol taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy, darkish, golden color. Small white head that dissipates quickly. Sweet, fruity aroma. Compared to top tier tripels, a somewhat bland and not very complex taste. Overall, a somewhat disappointing version of a tripel brew.

I thought that there would be more to this beer. I dont know... it was just a little disappointing. Was still nice and creamy and was very well finished. Just needed a little more punch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at De Foyer in the Bourla theater, Antwerpen. Hazy orange with a big, creamy head. Spicy yeast aroma with hints of oranges. Sweet flavours, good grassy bitterness. Some bread-like spiciness. Dry finish. Medium to full-bodied with good carbonation. The best I have so far tasted of the Leffe range.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not bad at all. Sweet, likeable. Most agreeable. Warms the cockles. I’m rather partial to this kind of thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml Bottle. Probably my favourite of all the Leffes and all of a sudden found popping up at Sainsburys regularly. A hazy Golden coloured beer with a clean thick head, whilst quite sweet this is balanced well with the strength and despite this ABV a very drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours hazy orange-amber with a modest white head that laces nicely. Aroma is very fruity and spicy. Flavor has kind of a soapy fruit thing to it. Spices there too. A little bitter. Not a top tier Tripel, but still not bad!
